Description

When the number of pages is getting higher and higher (~30+) it is really hard to find pages when adding them to a menu.

Suggestion:

  • Make the #pagechecklist bigger (or adjustable) for more overview

I have to say, that sometimes i don't get the search.

  1. suggestion:
  • limit the search to the title

Thank you so much!

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

Just noting that fixing the hierarchy issue in #18282 would likely resolve this as well.

  • Keywords needs-design-feedback added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 5.4
  • Version 5.3 deleted

This ticket was discussed during today's accessibility bug-scrub: agreed to scrollable divs need accessibility improvements. The accessibility team recommends to implement some of the recommendation from this post:
https://developer.paciellogroup.com/blog/2016/02/short-note-on-improving-usability-of-scrollable-regions/

Beside that, there are also UI / UX considerations as pointed out by @diebombe that would need UI / design feedback.

@afercia let's use #49211 to handle keyboard navigation enhancements, as pointed out in the 5.3 post-mortem blogpost ;-)

  • Milestone changed from 5.4 to Future Release

This ticket still needs design feedback and a direction, and with 5.4 Beta 1 landing tomorrow, this is being moved to Future Release. If any maintainer or committer feels this can be included in 5.4 or wishes to assume ownership during a specific cycle, feel free to update the milestone accordingly.

I also agree that the Add menu items > Pages search and View All tabs become hard to use with a large page structure.

For example, we have pages with specific titles but entering the exact title in the "Search" query returns anything but the page with the matching name, instead returning results at random that contain the word. Trying to find it in the View All tab requires endless scrolling and page turns.

I have to resort to adding Custom Links that to the menu that don't store the "Original" page reference, which I'd prefer not to do.
